I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!!!
I took some time of and went to Montreal to meet with my youngest who had just arrived to start college there! She was able to transfer from Scotland to Canada, yeah!!!
While there, we had a snow storm, 15" of snow in one day... We spent some time together, that went fast but was very very good!
Then I went back home... Made it safely home, had fog, snow sleet, ice on the way but made it safely!
Now, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!!!!

Quilted that one, customer's daughter going to college!
I had a booth at the Madison show last week, they had to change a bulb above the booth! ceiling was high!

My youngest daughter went off to college to Scotland, she is far far away... It is hard for me but she is really excited so that makes me feel better!
She took with her a quilt that I designed, then a friend pieced it, I quilted it and with 2 other friends we bound it! Here it is:

Then we made a sample for the store from the sample pattern:

Have you had bleeding fabrics?
Yesterday a customer came and she was devastated. She had made 2 quilts, one for her and one as a gift with almost the same fabrics. She washed them both and then put them in the dryer without noticing the bleeding on the one to be gifted, So we looked online for a solution. She went back home, put the quilt into water for 2 hours, then added to the water some oxiclean and let it sit for 8 hours agitating it a little bit once in a while... After that, she washed it and the bleeding was gone!!! So off to the dryer and then in the mail to its lucky recipient!!! Yeah!
So if this happens to you, try oxiclean!
Have a good one!

And just for the fun , went to a French connection event! But no bread, no cheese... but crepes and nice tablecloth though....

Back to my passion, quilting!
